I don't want to play favourites but I can't help but feel this is Carolyn's best book, it is wonderfully composed with vivid colours, sumptuous textures, and a sweetly drawn child. The blog Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast features some images from the book here: http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethings/?p=3316#more-3316
It is written by Cindy Jenson-Elliot and Kirkus has an interesting review where they assign the book their own homemade descriptor "Ficinformational" to describe it.
You can find out more about Carolyn on her website/blog http://www.carolynfisher.com
and she has created a trailer for the book which I have embedded below.
Weeds Find a Way was published this month by Beach Lane Books.

In a couple of months a new group of ACAD students will be graduating, I am keen to wake up After Art College and document their work. I'll also be updating what our fabulous alumni are up to. To start things off these are a warm up exercise for an illustrated type project the students are about to start.
